SOURCE: How do I change the rear 3 spark plugs on a '94 Grand Caravan?

Yes, these are tough to get at from the top. Put the front on jack stands or ramps, and you can reach them a little easier from the bottom. You just need to reach up where the exhaust pipe comes down, and you can even see what you're doing this way.

SOURCE: 1997 dodge caravan spark plug change procedure

With the engine cold, I think you take your 5/8 spark plug wrench, proper extensions, wobble joint (where needed) & 3/8 or 1/2 ratchet & remove 1 plug wire & plug at a time (In case you don't know the firing order or have the book, or don't have numbers on the plug wires at the ign module). The plugs in the front are easy to change, the back ones are a lot more difficult. I an assuming you have something like a 3.3 engine. (I have 3) While you are at it, check your small emissions hoses & vac hoses & belts. Rick

SOURCE: how do i change the rear spark plugs in a dodge

There are tow ways to get to the plugs, You can get to them from the top or from the bottom. There's quite a bit a bit of room in the transmission tunnel, and you can reach up and actually touch the plugs. There is trouble with the "alternator plug" (#1) , Hard to reach it from below, and you may ended up removing the alternator bracket and shoving the alternator back. 
From the top end,  removed the windshield wipers/cowl assembly, the intake plenum, remove the bracket from the alternator, easy, and the hardest part is just removing the bracket holding a wire harness from the back of the plenum, the bolts are a little hard to get to due to the a/c lines, but after they were out the plenum removed with ease and I replaced the back plugs(with champion double platinum RN14PMP5 OEM's) and replace the spark plug wires with BWD Selects. They are very good wires. Used anti-seize of course. Mounted the wire harness bracket back, put the plenum(with new gasket), vacuum lines, sensors, and alt.bracket back on then changed out the front ones. Replaced Wipers and your good to go. 

Note: if from the bottom  rotate the alternator to get the pass side and from below to get the middle and drivers side. You can use a jack stands and a creeper. Takes about an hour. Yes it's a PITA but, going from below greatly reduces the chance of spinning a bolt head off or breaking something else in the process of getting to the plugs. No special tools needed.   Good luck and if your lazy like i am just change the front ones and have a local shop replace the rear, they have the lift and will only cost an hour shop rate in your area. $65.00/hour average

My 1999 dodge caravan is jerking while i'm driving and now the service light has came on what can cause my van to to this

Probably a misfire with one of the spark plugs or wires. If you don't care to replace all you spark plugs, the front 3 are easy to replace if you want to try and replace them first to see if that fixes your issue.

Best way to change the rear 3 spark plugs on a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan AWD

If you can not see the 3 spark plugs from on top with your own eyes that you might have to use ramps underneath the front tires and go underneath the car to see if you can get to them this way. In some vehicles like my daewoo car has a plastic cover that I had to first take off so you can retrace the spark wires from the coil to the spark plugs so use a flashlight to see. If you are replacing to make sure if your vehicle has the right spark plugs and are gapped to your cars specs before replacing them.

Spark plug wires. If you take it in a garage or wait till it's dark, and have somebody brake torque it while you watch, you'll see spark jumping. But don't get run over! Do it in reverse. Or just change the wires.

Spark plugs for the back 3 in my 1999 dodge caravan

Yes, you are a very intelligent dude, that manifold that you re looking at, is the problem and the solution, this is one of the few problems where the problem is the solution.

Sol: remove the ****** out the way I bet you finish before finishing reading this.

Don't forget the new plenium original gasket from dealer, grease it with anti-sieze qrease, so on the next sparkplug change can be re-used.

Be careful with the electric wire that feed each fuel injectors.

Good hunting dude!!!!

sorry, but the manifold (intake) has to come OUT !!!!!!!!!
